Callisto Protocol game

Horror video games are becoming increasingly popular, and there are so many different titles to choose from. If you are a fan of horror video games, then you will love the latest game to have debuted on the market: Callisto Protocol! 

The Callisto Protocol is a new horror game that takes the genre to the next level. The game is set on a space station and you play as a security officer who is trying to survive a nightmarish event. The game is packed with horrifying enemies, intense action, and a story that keeps you hooked until the end. It is set in a dark and eerie world, and you will need to use your wits to survive. With exciting gameplay and a spine-tingling story, this game is sure to keep you entertained for hours on end. 

Today’s digital advancement and modern technology enabled the developer to create Callisto Protocol not only extensively gory but a seriously gruesome video game. The makers are quite unapologetic about it, they talked about how they did not want the players to imagine the horror, so this time around they went ahead and created a video game filled with so much horror, that no faint-hearted gamer should even consider playing it.

This game is so violent and brutal that the government of Japan requested the makers to make certain changes to it keeping in mind the local regulations. However, the makers refused to make any changes which led to the game being banned across Japan. 

There have been massive debates about whether such visual horror is justified or not. Horror expert and BBC Radio’s host Louise Blaine recently gave a statement in support of horror games: “… the truth is, if you don’t like horror games, no one is making you play. As long as it’s labeled for the right audiences, they should be able to watch and experience whatever they want.” Though some people still feel it is too gory a video game.

If you are a fan of horror games, then you need to check out The Callisto Protocol. It is a new game that will send chills down your spine and keep you up at night.

Trainwreck gifts twitch subscribers

Famous for his Twitch Gambling Streams and Massive Viewership, the known streamer Trainwreck has recently revealed the number of Twitch Subscribers he gifted in 2022. Not just on Twitch, he is also quite famous on the Amazon streaming platform, which he has used for money-making via donations, subscriptions, etc., for quite a time.

In his Livestream on December 14, the streamer revealed that he had gifted over 24,346 subscribers to various channels on Amazon. Subscriptions are one of the primary ways to assess the popularity of any Twitch streamer, as viewers on the platform can give it to their favorite streamer along with other rewards. But Trainwreck took this subscription donation to a whole new level this year with this massive amount.

By giving off these subscriptions to multiple smaller channels, Trainwreck has helped them to grow significantly. Despite this, the top five subscription leaders on Twitch are Casimoto, Asmongold, HasanAbi, Kai Cenat and xQc.

Trainwreck further added to it that this number doesn’t include the Twitch bits, StreamElements and StreamLab donations, which would further increase the count significantly. He has also revealed that apart from the online subscription donations on Amazon and Twitch, he also makes a lot of donations and giftings offline. 

On Twitch, a base subscription costs around $4.99. So, according to the number of subscriptions donated by Trainwreck, he has till now gifted the value of around $121,486.54 to various channels in 2022, assuming that each subscription is of Tier 1.

A majority of donations and subscriptions by Trainwreck are dedicated to small streamers and creators, which he wants to divert toward his other live-streaming platform, Kick. Along with that, he has also launched a mental health fund for donations to help and support other creators.

After gaining a lot of popularity for his gambling stream sessions, Twitch banned his such streaming sessions, which otherwise can be accessed on his platform Kick, his social media profile and occasional conversational streams on Twitch.

Even though many small Twitch streamers support Trainwreck and his live-streaming platform Kick, many popular live streamers criticized his platform publicly for taking 5% of subscription money. 

After facing a lot of backlash from such streamers to move to his own platform, Trainwreck announced the donation of $10,000 to 50 people under its holiday gateway, which started on December 12. According to Youtube Star Ludwig Ahgren, Trainwreck is one of the most generous Twitch Streamers online, and these gifted subscriptions are just proof of it.

Skyrim new mod

A new mod version (unofficial) of The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim has been released today to make the game available for NVIDIA DLSS, FSR (AMD) and XeSS (Intel). This latest release supports the upscaled resolution technology to let players enjoy the popular Bethesda RPG at higher settings.

The popular modder PureDark released the latest version, the same mod that has been working on The Resident 2 Remake Mod. While this version supports VR, the modders are working on a VR-specific version to optimize the graphics quality for an enhanced gaming experience. The modder has released this mod version specifically for the Anniversary/Special Editions of Skyrim.

The upscaling technology used in this mod works by redrawing the pixels on a screen to make graphics comparable to the high-resolution ones without actually being highly pixelated. This way, the game requires less space and resources on gamers’ hardware, so more people can play it.

To try this mod version, players require an NVIDIA RTX graphics card supporting DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) technology that boosts the gaming experience without requiring better hardware. It is available for the latest graphics cards of NVIDIA, like DLSS 2.0 or 3.0. While for AMD and Intex, it works with any GPU. Also, some plugins like SKSE would be required to try the add-ons by PureDark.

Modding is currently the most popular way to keep Skyrim alive and popular amongst gamers. There are plenty of elements and ways to experiment with to enhance the gaming experience for this popular title. From graphical tweaks to fixing bugs, creating new missions, NPCs and even minute details allowing modders to release unique versions of this game. It is because of the modders’ community that the 2011 RPG was in the limelight this year.

There are a variety of mods that players can check for the special edition. For instance, Wyrmstooth is an expansion-sized mod that keeps adding new quests and dungeons. Players can also check the Skyrim Together Reborn mod. Right now, Skyrim fans are experimenting with different mods to explore new ways to enjoy this title, and the craze is not going to end anytime soon.

Currently, Skyrim doesn’t feature any mod for ray tracing. However, some new software has been released by NVIDIA that can make mod ray tracing easier for older games. Currently, the Lux-Via mod is the only possibly closest mod for Skyrim ray tracing.
